I had a 93 190 that I sold a couple months ago. This one came up for sale by me and I couldn't pass it up.

Yeah I was a little hesitant about the 5.0 engine but to be honest it's hard to tell a difference. Pulls strong out of the hole.

Justin,

Good looking ride. It would look even better at Metroplex Ski Club.... Give that Tex fella a shout, rumor is he knows something about the MSC.

AWESOME looking boat. That is the only year of the 5.0 265 HP
Motor. Plenty of power. Go to a 4 blade 13 x 12 and watch it become
a rocket

Have FUN

Justin, from the hours, I'm guessing the answer is no, but did you happen to buy that boat from a guy named Curtis Parker?

No Eastie. I bought from a guy in The Colony by the name of Don.

Jim I will be in touch with you about that prop!

Does the 5.0 get better fuel economy, or is it not noticeable?

justinglow

I have not noticed anything yet. It's a great engine though. Hard to believe it's only a 5.0 under the engine box.

may i ask the difference in a prostar and sportstar?? thanks for educating me!!

From what I understand the Sportstar was Mastercraft's no frills ski boat. It used the same hull as the 95-97 Prostars. Just didn't have a lot of the extra bells and whistles.

Tex where do you guys ski at?

Here is a link Video on the 19' skier. What I believe is the same as the sport star.

That and it has a much more basic interior. No ski gunnel's like on the prostar, non removable teak platform.

As Jim mentioned, 98 was the only year with the 260 hp 5.0L. The 99s had a 310 hp 5.7.
